Console not working as expected

I have two OpenBSD 3.0 machines.  One of them is on -current, the other is on -release.  The -current machine is trying to console into the -release machine, and almost nothing happens.  If I set up the null modem cable, and run "cu -l /dev/tty00" I can watch the -release machine boot up, from the boot> prompt to when it echo's the date and time.  I believe that is the last step before giving the login prompt.  After the date is echoed, the console is non-responsive.  I can login, however, via the directly connected keyboard, and there are no problems there.  If I watch the boot sequence on the -release machine, after boot> it says "switching console to com0".  The null modem cable DID work until I wiped the system and reinstalled 3.0.  There are no differences between working config and non-working config.  I was messing around with partition table, and since I didn't have anything important on it, I just wiped and started over.  When I login via root on the keyboard, it ec!
hos the root login warning on the console.  Console boot output from the -release machine following the signature.
